  1. I havent had any problems till now with my laptop ACER ASPIRE 5510 untill now.
    Last i remember is i was playing a game and it shut down all of a sudden.
    So i pressed the on button and it booted up and i could hear the fan and hard drive all working fine but the screen stayed black, i have checked the screen to make sure it wasnt just dim and its not just not working?

    Please Help!

    Im starting to get annoyed :dead:

    Have you tried connecting an external monitor (how to is in your manual)?

    It may well be a component failure like an inverter board since you 'crashed' when it first happened.

    Cant get my hands on a monitor at the moment.

    How much would it cost to fix?
